Mike Castle deserves credit for backing stem cell research

I found a great letter written by Phyllis Fink to the editor of The News Journal in Wilmington, DE, that I would like to share here.

We should all appreciate Congressman Mike Castle’s support for and work on the issue of embryonic stem cell research. He took this giant step in the face of opposition from his own party, believing that such research could bring results that would benefit all of us.

Those opposed to such research are entitled to their views. Yet those who have truly done their homework on this issue understand that there is room on the side of this research for people of faith as well as for people of pure science. It should be noted that many staunch conservatives like Nancy Reagan and Sen. Orrin Hatch have joined Congressman Castle in his support for this research. Additionally, polls have shown that a majority of citizens are in favor of this research moving forward.

Already the treatment for leukemia has been improved because of embryonic stem cell research. Scientists see in this research the potential for treating cancer as well as crippling neurological diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, spinal cord injuries, in addition to stroke, burns, heart disease and diabetes. Who among us would refuse treatment for any of these dread diseases because the discovery of such treatment was made possible by embryonic stem cell research?
